With seven miles of sandy beaches, it's no surprise that Poole and Bournemouth is one of the venues used for top-class volleyball each summer. Almost all the clubs with teams in the indoor league own their own outdoor nets and hold regular beach nights.

Beach nights are usually held from April/May until the end of August.

As well as the local clubs, Poole Leisure Services own several sets of volleyball nets which can be hired for a fully-refundable £25 deposit. These are available from the Sandbanks Beach Office between 9:30am and 5:30pm, seven days a week. For more information call 01202 708181.
